What do you want to communicate to the world? What tools for personal evolution do you want to share with the world? What inspires you?
The path of yoga is ultimately a path to peace. My vision is to live in a more peaceful world and my mission is to share the tools of yoga and a healthy, balanced lifestyle with the world. I believe that you can learn to love your life as it is and use these tools to find inner peace. The greatest impact you can make in this world is your own self-transformation. I love to read, write, and reflect every morning for personal growth.
People inspire me. I’m inspired by people’s ability to overcome profound suffering. I’m inspired by those who create awareness. The kids at the youth village in Rwanda continue to be a source of inspiration.
What inspired you to become a yoga teacher?
After I took my first yoga class in January 2015, I wanted to learn as much as I could about yoga. I went daily and read everything from the Bhagavad Gita to the Upanishads. My innate curiosity and desire to learn more about myself ultimately led me to enroll in the course.

I partnered with Xol Coffee & Tea Company, to provide complimentary fair trade coffee at my yoga events.

We have similar interests in education, women’s empowerment, and making a positive impact in the world.
